* AchillesHeel: A simple set of five pressure points hit simultaneously will knock out her powers for an entire day - . The two on her back aren't much of a problem, but the three in front are right over her ''breast'' - the resulting attack looks a lot like someone's wrestling her into submission and groping the hell out of her.



* EnergyAbsorption: One of her two modes of attack, it temporarily renders the victim too weak to stand. It also makes her immune to even the fiercest of KiAttacks.

to:

* EnergyAbsorption: One of her two modes of attack, it temporarily renders the victim too weak to stand. It also makes her immune to even the fiercest of KiAttacks. As a bonus, she can release that energy as a blast that will hit like a speeding truck.



* GlassCannon: To anyone who knows her pressure points. However, even Ranma can only do it over the course of a drawn-out battle, given that she can reduce any fighter to a groaning mass with just one shot, and take out a wall with the resulting firepower.



* OlderAlterEgo

to:

* OlderAlterEgoOlderAlterEgo: Inverted. She's OlderThanSheLooks - in her twenties - but can only appear thus after draining battle aura. Most of the time she's pre-teen.


Added DiffLines:

* WhoWillBellTheCat: If her pressure points were to be hit every day consecutively for a month, she'd permanently lose her ability to drain battle aura. However, Ranma is the only one capable of doing so(Happosai's more than skilled enough, but his armspan is too short to hit all five at once), and the first time he pulled it off required a drawn-out battle he spent several days recovering from. Nuts to that.

* HelloNurse and MsFanservice: Her adult (and true) form. 'Nuff said.



* TheMindIsAPlaythingOfTheBody: Under normal circumstances, her personality definitely changes whether she's an adult or a child. However, being stuck as a little girl has affected her so much that, if she stays too long in her "real" adult mode, though, her mind will wander and she'll start acting like a kid again.

Ranma's long-absent mother is a late-comer to the series. Back when Ranma was just a little boy, his father took him away from home, assuaging Nodoka's complaints by vowing he and Ranma would commit {{Seppuku}} if he failed to make Ranma a "man among men". After Ranma's little accident at Jusenkyo, Genma decided it would be best to avoid Nodoka, though she eventually did find out -- fortunately for her son and husband, the precise event had Ranma at some of his best behavior and she decided that the curse wasn't grounds to make Ranma kill himself. Generally a very sweet and motherly sort, but she is just as fixated on honor as her son and husband are (perhaps more so), and she's ''still'' carrying that sword around by the series' end, watching and judging Ranma's behavior...

Ranma's long-absent mother is a late-comer to the series. Back when Ranma was just a little boy, an infant that had yet to learn how to walk, his father took him away from home, assuaging Nodoka's complaints by vowing he and Ranma would commit {{Seppuku}} if he failed to make Ranma a "man among men".

* TheFettered: Frequently believed to cling so tightly to the contract in order to draw the emotional strength from it she needs to survive being separated from her son and husband for so many years.
* HonorBeforeReason: She will hold Ranma to the contract Genma wrote up come hell or high water, despite the fact it is so vague it is impossible to truly determine what would actually fulfill it successfully. She does partially avert the trope when [[spoiler: she declares that Ranma's Nyannniichuan curse does not merit an automatic failure to live up to the contract, due to the sheer heroism of the way he saved her despite exposing it to her in the process]].

years. And then there's the ''secondary'' task she's meant to perform if forced to fulfill the seppuku promise.
* HonorBeforeReason: She will hold Ranma to the contract Genma wrote up come hell or high water, despite the fact it is so vague it is impossible to truly determine what would actually fulfill it successfully. Furthermore, she ''will'' commit [[SlashedThroat ritual suicide herself]] after fulfilling that task, according to family honor. She does partially avert the trope when [[spoiler: she declares that Ranma's Nyannniichuan curse does not merit an automatic failure to live up to the contract, due to the sheer heroism of the way he saved her despite exposing it to her in the process]].

to:

* ParentsAsPeople: What saves her from being a downright abuser is that the poor woman ''does'' love Ranma as much as her seriously warped nature allows, as seen in MamaBear. She also spent some time sewing a customized winter coat for Ranma when he was still a baby in expectation that he'd wear it some day. Before she found out the truth, she doted on, cared for, and worried about "Ranko" just as much as a mother would, becoming seriously distressed when she thought the girl was in trouble.



* PrinciplesZealot: She is so fixated on ''the concept'' of a "Man among men" that she lets Genma take a 5-year-old Ranma away in the middle of the night, despite ''literally'' fighting against it tooth and nail just moments before, all because Genma provided a two-part promise. Verbal: "I will make Ranma a man among men." Written: "I will commmit seppuku." While it's all fine and dandy, both ethically and legally, for Genma to sign such a contract, to trick the five-year-old Ranma to sign it by making the boy think he's doing finger painting, goes beyond the pale, even in the most "conservative" of Japanese homes. The fact that she considers the Jusenkyo curse a supernatural force beyond Ranma's control, and doesn't immediately disqualify him is a minor miracle considering this mindset, and her swords-man's "itchy trigger finger."

The fact Thus, by Nodoka's understanding, if Genma was so utterly ''dedicated'' to this goal as to go ''that far'', she had no choice but follow both sides of the contract to the letter. Fortunately, she decided that, curse or no curse, Ranma was a man through and through no matter what body he's in --it's "only" if his personal behavior proves otherwise that she considers starts pulling out her sword.

The last of the major characters to be introduced (in the manga -- the anime was cancelled before she was created, so in that canon she was merely the subject of an OAV and appears in a second one, Nightmare Incense of Spring Sleep), Hinako was hired by Principal Kuno ostensibly as a new Homeroom/English teacher for Ranma's classroom, but more likely as yet another of the principal's "attacks" on Ranma for his own amusement. Hinako's story begins many years before the series, when she was a little girl in the hospital for an unidentified ailment. Happosai, wandering by, dropped in and either took pity on her, saw someone he could use to help him steal underwear from the nurses, or both. He subjected her to a regime of PressurePoint manipulation that would endow her with the ability to drain the BattleAura from other people, which he insisted would help her get better. Flash forward to the present day, and she's all better... but now she's [[DualAgeModes stuck looking like a kid]] unless she [[EnergyAbsorption drains]] somebody's BattleAura, and she'll only remain in her adult form until she uses up the [[LifeEnergy ki]] she stole. Obsessed with stomping out "delinquency", she frequently clashes with Ranma, particularly after she falls in love with Soun Tendo.

* LastMinuteHookup: Zigzagged. Konatsu has all the right traits to fit this trope, being a LoveInterest for Ukyo who is introduced in the last four volumes of the manga, and has only ''one'' story featuring him in a major role that isn't his introduction. The subversion is that Ukyo never shows any signs of reciprocating his feelings, and of course the manga concludes on its infamous NonEnding, so nobody ever really hooks up conclusively.

* SkewedPriorities: A financial version. Due to being brought up under hideously AbusiveParents, Konatsu has absolutely ''no'' understanding of the real value of money whatsoever. Played simultaneously for laughs and drama (it's [[DisfunctionJunction that sort of]] [[ComedicSociopathy series]]) in his only post-intro focus story, where he almost bankrupts Ucchan's due to his incomprehension of how normal people define "average", "poor", and "extravant" by, amongst other things, selling his okonomiyaki for only 2 yen apiece because he thinks that's a fair price.

** He actually ''did'' stop Ranma's attacks without even trying at the beginning. Had he been around more, he might have shown us more of his abilities.
*** He's shown doing ''one finger'' pushups in the anime, just to stay in shape, and efficiently fights the "toad sennin/Frog Hermit" with pressure-point attacks late in the series.

* BenevolentBoss: How Konatsu sees her. Of course, the reality is [[BadBoss rather the opposite]]; it's just that Konatsu is so screwed up that being paid 10 yen an hour and given free room and board without regular beatings is heaven to him.



* CovertPervert: A mild case. If someone she likes calls her cute, asks her if she likes him, takes the initiative, or such, she easily turns blushing, flustered and ComedicSociopathy awkwardness-whacking prone. - "Oooh I'm so embarrassed!" (Runs away). However, if ''she'' feels like taking the initiative, she can get almost as lecherous as Shampoo - "Move your finger from that photograph! I want to see his *** !"; "Remember when we slept together as kids? Hurry over!" (Drooling); "Hi, I just decided to barge in on you in the bath. Now let your buddy Ucchan scrub your body all over! Don't be shy... hey where are you running off to?" - This, and the constant romantic fantasies, is the reason why almost nobody doubts her raging heterosexuality, despite the cross-dressing.

* CovertPervert: A mild case. If someone Like Akane, she likes calls her cute, asks her if she likes him, takes tends to freak out when Ranma, intentionally or otherwise, makes what can be seen as a direct romantic gesture towards her, typically blushing, smacking him and then running off. On the other hand, given the chance to take the initiative, or such, she's clearly not all the "blushing maiden". One particularly prominent example is during the manga version of the Hiryu Shoten Ha arc; she easily turns blushing, flustered pleads with Genma to move his thumb and ComedicSociopathy awkwardness-whacking prone. - "Oooh I'm so embarrassed!" (Runs away). However, if ''she'' feels like taking expose the initiative, full-frontal nudity in a photo of Ranma he's showing off, in comparison to the blushing Akane, who can't stand to look at it [[note]]in the anime, perhaps due to censorship, the pose is changed and she can get almost as lecherous as Shampoo - "Move your finger from that photograph! I want to see his *** !"; "Remember just laughs with Akane at how silly Ranma is acting in it[[/note]]. In both continuities, when we slept together as kids? Hurry over!" (Drooling); "Hi, I just decided she thinks Ranma is trying to barge in on you take her engagement seriously in the bath. Now let your buddy Ucchan scrub your body all over! Don't be shy... hey where are you running off to?" - Spoiled Sauce story, she eagerly tries to initiate "wifely duties" like joining him in the bath or the bed. This, and the constant romantic fantasies, is the reason why almost nobody doubts her raging heterosexuality, despite the cross-dressing.



* GoodIsNotNice: Ukyo is initially introduced as the "good girl" of Akane's three romantic rivals, which mostly manifests as her taking the most sane and sensible ways to earn Ranma's affection (until she gets a case of TookALevelInJerkass, at least). Despite this, she's also plain-spoken and strongly opinionated, which means she does ''not'' hold back from criticizing others on their stupidity (most commonly Ryoga, when they team up). Of course, given this is a comedy series, her criticisms can often fall into HypocriticalHumor.



* TookALevelInJerkass: Ukyo is, initially, the ''nice one'' of the three girls trying to displace Akane from Ranma's heart, mostly trying to push Akane aside with Ryoga than through violence. By the later parts of the manga, though, she has devolved to becoming as violent and crazy as Shampoo and Kodachi, where she does things like join them in trying to bump off Nabiki when she takes up the Tendo engagement, levels the Saotome house alongside them, shamelessly exploits Konatsu's ignorance and feelings for her to use him as cheap labor, and joins Shampoo in slinging bombs around at Ranma & Akane's abortive wedding.
** Zigzagged in the anime. Whilst she does get involve in some more "typical romantic rival" hijinks, like trying to abuse Ranma's being under the effects of a LovePotion-laced bandaid, she doesn't go to any of the same extents that happened in the manga.



* AbusiveMom: While PlayedForLaughs almost as much as her husband is, she's just as bad, if not worse. Despite the fact that the contract consists of a verbal vow ("I will make Ranma a man among men") and a written seal ("I will commit {{Seppuku}}: Genma, Ranma"), both of which are incredibly vague, she is totally willing to call it in if she ever judges Ranma to somehow be unmanly. Nodoka is so fixated on the idea that whenever she visits looking for Ranma, she keeps a sword in constant reach, in preparation for the decapitating strike she will be called on to use in the ceremony. In fact, she seems to have the swordswoman's equivalent of an itchy trigger finger, being quite willing to draw it at the slightest hint that her son is being unmanly (both before and after finally meeting him,) and going all the way to donning the requisite regalia if he does something ''very'' unmanly. She doesn't get many appearances in the series once she moves into the Tendo Dojo, though.

A male ninja raised as a female kunoichi by his cruel stepmother and stepsisters. Despite Konatsu being a prodigy in the arts of ninjitsu, he never managed to kill off his stepfamily (not through lack of trying) and was resolved to being their slave. Until the day Happosai, Soun and Genma wandered into the "Sexy Ninja Teashop" and, horrified by the fact the "sexy ninjas" were his stepfamily, destroyed it, whereupon they sent him for revenge upon Ranma. Konatsu decided he'd rather stay in Nerima, particularly after Ukyo treated him kindly and unintentionally caused him to fall in love with her, and began working at Ucchan's Okonomiyaki after his stepfamily was driven away with the help of Ukyo, Ranma and Akane. Though Ukyo still treats him in a way anyone else would consider ridiculously shabby, it's much more than he had at home and so he's content with it.
